Baby Jesus Advent Calendar

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

A Family Tradition
Advent means "the coming" and refers to the 4 week season of preparation for the coming of Jesus on Christmas Day
and anticipation of His coming again. Advent begins the Sunday nearest November 30th and continues until December 24th.
The Advent calendar, which originated in 19th Century Europe, has 24 numbered flaps concealing a biblical scene and verse about the coming of the Messiah. Children especially enjoy opening a new door each day
as Christmas draws near and we come once again to the Birth of Christ.
12" wide and ribbon for hanging. Ribbon will vary. Available at our "petite department store"!
We wish everyone a Blessed Christmas Season.

Picking Christmas Wrapping Colors from an Outfit?

Friday, November 21, 2008

We were smitten by the combo of the colors of J.Crew's outfit-
the deep royal blue, melon and contrast of a greenish yellow. We dove into ordering a collection of velvet ribbons and paper ribbon for packaging, inspired by these colors. As for gift wrap none other than our favorite foil paper. Here we'll show you some packaging supplies inspired by j.crew's picture.

{by the way did any of you see the J.Crew's creative director's home in the latest domino? very fun I tell you!}

The display Darcy did of the bracelets is delightful. Love the texture of the wood in contrast to the jewelry.

Have a lovely day!

Mellow day at the shop..........
When I should be pricing Christmas I was messing around with Luke's pics I took yesterday. We don't have "the" photoshop program yet- but, this very un-technical gal is impressed with our Mac's iphoto program. I'm loving the antique effect.

I need to get busy this last hour and get something done for the shop, website or worthwhile labors. {I promise Darcy!}
